Bad roads, a blot on heritage city

September 30, 2021


It is unfortunate that muda is busy in e-auctioning of sites without developing or maintaining the necessary infrastructure. No need to visit Europe or America to study how roads are to be maintained. Small States like Goa have such good roads. The tourist places there are so well-developed and maintained, it makes one wonder why not in Namma Mysuru?

Our city roads irrespective of the areas are so bad that most of the two-wheel riders develop spinal problems with unplanned, invisible humps adding to the misery. When the roads are unusable, why have the humps?

When most of the other neighbouring States are developing, unfortunately our State’s most visited tourist place Mysuru has crumbling infrastructure.

It is high time the authorities concerned put together all the resources and plan to have good motorable roads.

    Adding to the insult of bad roads, there are too many so called “speed breakers” which have been built both legally and illegally. Most are totally unscientific and do not correspond to any standards. On many roads, there are these speed breakers every 50 or 100 meters. Added to this are the bad roads filled with potholes, making driving/riding a living hell. There are established norms for constructing speed breakers and also the intervals (distances between speed breakers) at which these must be constructed. But these norma are flouted. Will the MCC look into these unscientific/illegal speed breakers and ensure these are reconstructed as per norms and illegal ones removed???

    Also you can find small holes which was neglected when road was constructed in the middle of the road, which creates a problem for two wheeler to brake suddenly, either they have to pass through it which creates problems to their spinal cord and suspension or avoid it by creating problems for the vehicle coming from behind, try coming from fountain circle to Columbia Asia circle via LIC and take a right and then left on bibi Aisha hospital road, you will face this.
